In the middle somewhere.
Have not listened to Lynn Austin, but I have read another of her books. But I grabbed this one simply because Linda Stephens is narrating!
The coming home scene at the the very end. I don't want to give anything away and spoil it for someone else.
The father's prayer.
My review headline says it for me -- a bit creepy!
I think the most memorable is Uncle Screwtape's disgust of the human's love interest.
I like his voice, but at times I thought he read too fast and missed the emotion.
No. I needed breathing time. This is a very suffocating story.
I read/listened to this for my local book club. I'm glad I got through it, but I would not need to read it again.
Emotional, adventurous, sadness.
Pip imploring Estella not to get married. My heart ached for his that was breaking.
Seriously, I cannot pick a "favorite".
Yes, it took me much longer to read/listen to than it should have, partly because deep down, I didn't want to leave Pip behind.
If you're looking at which version to listen to, you will not be disappointed with this performance. It is fantastic.
"Love" is not the word. It's a tough story to read, very emotional. I would say that I am glad I finally read it. And leave it at that.
Uncle Tom's unwavering faith in God and the ripple effects his life has on others is by far, the BEST part of this story.
Pleasant (at times). Irritating (at times--she could go from a soft to harsh sound in the middle of a sentence. This took some getting used to). Unemotional (at times--I was disappointed that she didn't read as sincerely as I was expecting). But after listening to Linda Stephens read Gone With The Wind, everyone is going to pale in comparison.
No, that would have been impossible. Needed breaks from the sadness.
It was a joy to listen to this time around. I think I finally have all the countries of Oz in order. So many adventurous events and characters to remember!
Compare Oz? It's in a class by itself.
She has a very pleasant voice to listen to. Great job with the voices, with the exception of the Wizard. But that's just my opinion and a very minor complaint.
No extreme reaction. It's my second time through this story.
I would highly recommend this version to anyone wondering which to choose. You won't be disappointed.
I would recommend this book very highly because it has been well-researched and compiled to be very easily understood.
O'Reilly's ability to put Roman history in total perspective in relation to the time period. It all makes sense.
I liked the story about Jesus preaching in Nazareth, being almost run over the cliff by the church leaders, but then just... walking away. Goosebump stuff.
I laughed and cried. Jesus' brutal beatings and death are very hard to imagine and listen to. But in the end... =)
The story is wonderful to start with, but Gerald Dickens' narration puts it over the top!
All the truths coming out at the end.
This was my first, and I will most definitely seek out more of his work!
All of the characters are so well-drawn, but for me... probably Nancy. She risks everything to do the right thing.
Just one... if you are reading this review to see what others think of this particular version of Oliver Twist -- trust me... THIS is the one to get. You will not be sorry!
The story itself is compelling, but Bill Homewood's narration is top notch, start to finish!
I liked that these people's lives were a house of cards ready to fall, with or without the Count.
I have not. But I would search him out as a narrator again. If there were several narrations available to a book I was looking for, and he was among them, I would purchase that book with no hesitation.
This book has had many film adaptions. Some ok, some downright bad. The book is the best.
Best: the good hearts of the charactersLeast: the narrator
The ending did not make sense to me. If this is indicative of a "Russion fairy tale", I am not much of a fan.
Different narrator with more expression in the vocals would have done wonders for this bleak story. Or maybe it was the narrator that was bleak.
Poor choice in narrator. She had a pleasant voice, but she read very flat and blah. I kept thinking it would improve. It did not.
Classic... Heart... Life
Little Women is in a league by itself. Why try to compare others?
Kate's voice is very pleasant and she does an excellent job with all the characters' voices. I never once wondered who was talking. The story really comes alive with a great narrator. Thank you, Kate.
Not really. I wanted to take my time with it. And did. It was great to listen to in the car on my work commute. Very calming but engaing.
I am so glad to have narrator choices with Audible, so that I can sample and pick the one I think will suit me best. Thank you, Audible, for the variety!
